Collegedale Police Partner With FBI Task Force

  • Thursday, February 29, 2024
Lt. Robert Hirko was sworn in to serve with the FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force on Tuesday. Lt. Hirko has served the citizens of Collegedale as a patrol supervisor and an investigator. He is currently the Support Services Division commander.

According to the memorandum of understanding between the Collegedale Police Department and the FBI, the mission of the Safe Streets Task Force is to identify and target for prosecution criminal enterprise groups responsible for drug trafficking, money laundering, alien smuggling, crimes of violence, such as murder and aggravated assault, robbery and violent street gangs, as well as to intensely focus on the apprehension of dangerous fugitives where there is or may be a federal investigative interest.


The purpose of the task force is to "enhance the effectiveness of federal, state and local law enforcement through a well-coordinated initiative seeking the most effective investigative avenues in order to convict and incarcerate dangerous offenders."

Members from other area law enforcement agencies have also joined the task force with Lt. Hirko.

“This partnership provides an invaluable resource to the citizens of Collegedale,” said Chief Jack Sapp. “Not only will this provide our investigators with access to the resources of the federal government, but it will enhance the cooperation we count on between ourselves and our sister agencies. I’m very proud that Lt. Hirko was sought out by our local FBI office and entrusted with this incredible opportunity. He is a valued member of this agency and my administrative team.”
